I am guessing no one told you this beautiful truth: Plantains are gifts from heaven.
Do you like McDonald's french fries? Don't lie. Do you have a pan? Do you have salt? Do you have some oil?
Then go out and get yo-self a big banana looking plantain my friend and be happy because you know what? Betta than Mickie D's friedness is coming to your house.
oil (coconut if your like your health.)
dip for your fries
Put a little oil in your pan. Enough for cover half a slice of plantain. Turn on your stovetop to high. When you think it may be hot enough....throw in a little plantain slice to see if it's hot enough. You will see frying and hear sizzling when it's go time.
Then throw in all the plantains if there is room. After they are a little golden (30 seconds-1 min. maybe) flip those suckers. Wait a few more precious seconds.
Take them out and dump salt on them.
Dip them in ketchup and feel warm and happy.
|They look like bananas, but taste like french fries. promise.|
